I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but I have been unable to ID the year or anything beyond the manufacturer of this Baby Grand that my family was planning on getting rid of. I was debating if I should restore it or at least try to sell it but I can't find any information on it, besides the manufacturer and 40 year timespan in which it could have been made.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!https://imgur.com/gallery/ezpIfmK
Starck made pretty darn good pianos in their day. This one was made in (I am guessing) the mid 1950s, based on a quick googling find a Starck with a lower serial number made around 1949 and a one with a higher serial number made around 1961, and the case style and degree of apparent aging. There's no point in narrowing it down more precisely than that, although someone here could I'm sure.
I'd say to not attempt restoring it, unless you are an experienced piano rebuilder with a lot of free time and no expectation of seeing a return on that investment.
As for getting rid of it, no dealer will pay you more than pennies, and how much you could get privately would depend on factors like how good/bad is the tuning and how well/badly does it play, how quickly you want to dispose of it versus how much the buyer wants an old grand needing some $$$ put into it, etc.
I've done what I call "practical restorations" on at least few Starck grands from that era; that means I put just *barely* enough work into to either A: get it ready for sale, in the sense of making it appealing to a buyer without putting much money into it, or B: making it work well enough to keep the owner happy until they can do an upgrade, in the sense of getting it very well tuned and stable, and addressing just enough of the worst problems to make playing it pleasurable, again with the view to having an absolute minimum of money invested. Both of the above were mid-hundreds not thousands, and well worth it to either a seller or owner, but did not really "restore" the piano in any meaningful way.
